More Self Portraits

About five years ago my older girls did the project in my previous post, and then we added a twist to that one -- making a collage of their faces from colored papers. That was a little bit more challenging, but it was fun.  I dug around and was only able to come up with Alison's art work (she was nine) and the pictures I did of Emily when she was five months old.  (Gotta love the big ol' angel kiss on her upper lip! )  To do the collage, simply glue little bits of colored paper over the photo.  Instructions for the drawing are in the post below.

While you're here, go see Michelle's kids' results.  They did a stupendous job!

    Those are awesome!

    (You are just FULL of great ideas!) :-)

  2. You have such a great looking blog! I love the way you have it all laid out and the vast amount of helpful subjects you carry. I'm going to save these posts on the collage to do in the future, as well as the neat things you did with the apples and the homemade dolls. Those (the dolls) are the coolest little gift idea. I just have to try this.

    I love the way you lay your pictures out - the beautiful flower collage you did in one of your posts - I aspire to do that some day.

    Have a great weekend!
